Just like all of the people calling foul and stoking violence; I don't know enough of the facts to form a realistic opinion.

Hot and steamy in the bedroom tonight

Re: FSW attorney cost

As has been said DIY is free.

We have a FSW application in at the moment and it wasn't hard to complete.

Re: The 2012/2013 FSW Timeline Club

Re: PR's don't want to pledge

I agree.

If I had to say the whole pledge then I would, but if I could leave out the queen part (hey, there's an idea; make it optional :thumbup: ), the oath would actually mean something to me...

Re: How well do you know the United Kingdom?

33%
